Listening List: August 2012

Back in Bangkok this month, I’ve resumed my heavy diet of listening to music. All day, all night, the music never stops. When I’m at my bookshop, the tunes are always playing, and after closing my shop each night, I trot home listening to tunes on my portable player. Then, once I’m home, I resume the tunes. No TV, no movies, no chatting on the phone, no night out on the town; only music. What can I say; it’s my drug. Here are the CDs getting played the most this month.
